23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.
In June last year, guitarist and founding member Laurent Lebec took an indefinite hiatus from Pelican and now the band has announced that they found their new guitarist in Dallas Thomas of the band The Swan Kings for the spot Lebec left vacant.
Dallas Thomas had been filling in for Laurent Lebec at live shows and now officially joins full-time.
Currently, Pelican is focusing on the writing sessions for their new album and follow-up to their last full-length What We All Come To Need and last year's EP Ataraxia/Taraxis. The album's working title is Fecal Cliff or that might also be a stinky joke.
